August 19, 2020 – Kancamagus Highway – New Hampshire

Today Wilma and I Adventured to the Kancamagus Highway in the White Mountains of New Hampshire.  The Kancamagus Highway is made up of 34 miles of scenic highway which incorporates numerous sites and locations, including: camping, hiking, and scenic spots.  It is also known for the rushing Swift River.  The Kancamagus Highway is especially popular during the Fall months when leaf peepers frequent the area.

We had a wonderful Adventure to the Kancamagus Highway.  We visited Sabbaday Falls, the Albany Covered Bridge, Lower Falls, Rocky Gorge, Lily Pond, Lincoln Woods, several scenic overviews, and the Lovequist Pond Loop.  We have been to all these locations before, but it has been some time that we visited some of them.  We arrived at 6am and except for Lincoln Woods were able to avoid the crowds, quite surprised and pleased to see fewer visitors then at any of our previous visits.  Wilma was thrilled with the rocks, hiking, and exploring, and I could not get enough of the beauty and great exercise.  It was one special day, and we were both exhausted by the time we headed home.  I decided to do a collage of all of these locations below, although will only include limited photographs of the Albany Covered Bridge as I blogged about it individually.  It warms my heart to know that I first discovered the Kancamagus Highway with Shadow and Buster, and will continue these Adventures with Wilma.  If you have any questions about these locations, or photographs please reach out to me in the comments, or through the “contact” form on the menu.  We love the White Mountains of New Hampshire (Rating:  5).

Weekly Video/Photo

If you regularly follow my blog, and the weekly/video photo I would recommend skipping on to paragraph three, specific to this week’s video/photo.  I have decided to add a weekly video/photo section to my blog.  This blog will display a video or photo, usually highlighting an Adventure, while I might also sneak in some that are humorous, adorable, or just other fun dog moments.

So if you have followed my blog from the beginning you will know that I adopted Shadow as a puppy, and about a year later adopted Buster as a puppy.  We had many wonderful years together before experiencing the devastating loss of Buster at just seven.  It took a long time for our hearts to heal, but almost a year later we welcomed little Wilma into our world.

Today’s feature is a photograph from our October visit to the Rocky Gorge on the Kancamangus Highway.  Since I had blogged about the Rocky Gorge previously, I did not blog again on this visit, however, definitely could not resist sharing this Fall photograph of Shadow and Wilma.   Although you can not see their sweet faces, I love the Fall colors, and a photograph where they are actively checking out the view.  We cannot get enough of the beautiful New England Fall!

October 20, 2018 -Rocky Gorge – New Hampshire

On October 20, 2018 Shadow, Wilma, and I Adventured to the Rocky Gorge in Albany, New Hampshire on the Kancamangus Highway. We have been there on other visits including with Buster and My Mom. The Rocky Gorge is a Gorge along the Swift River with a ten foot drop. The area has a foot bridge across the River that leads to Falls Pond, which is surrounded by the White Mountains.

We had a splendid Adventure to the Rocky Gorge on the Kancamangus Highway. It was a beautiful,cool Fall day, and the Rocky Gorge was one of our three stops. The Rocky Gorge is a beautiful scenic area with rocks, mountain views, a gorge, a picturesque bridge, a pond, trails, and much more. We started off our visit with a stop along the rocks checking out the views, and the stunning Gorge. From the rocks we headed over to the bridge, and to the scenic small pond called Fall Pond. I was quite pleased to find the Lovequist Loop, a trail which traversed the outskirts of the pond. It was a simple trail, but yet such a pleasant day to be out for a stroll. The Gorge area was packed with tourists, but we only saw several hikers along this trail. We enjoyed this loop trail, and were pleased to find several little paths to the pond for some great views, and of course a swim for Shadow. After completing this loop we headed back to the Gorge for some more photographs, and exploring. Our last stop on a fun day of Adventures.

The Rocky Gorge will always hold a special place in my heart. This was the last stop on Buster’s last Fall trip, just two years ago. Little did we know he would leave us less then one week after our stop at the Gorge. We are lucky to have this special Adventure engraved in our hearts forever!

Overall I have found the Rocky Gorge to be an exceptionally beautiful location.
It was funny to see that we have only visited in the the month of October, but really nothing can compare to the New England Fall. I highly recommend you schedule a visit to the Rocky Gorge (Rating: 5).
